Who's the moron who had the brilliant idea to upload every Dead show on the archive? Why not do it a year at a time? Keep them up there for two weeks to a month, then throw up the next year. I feel sorry for the bums who are going to spend every waking our downloading all of those shows. It's really sad. Why not give your money to charity?

Well, that decision was by all of us, of which I am the digital librarian, so I hold alot of the responsibility.

While we have growing pains, I am proud of the progress on bringing lots of interesting material to lots of people. The Grateful Dead was seminal in non-commercial starting the tape trading to a mainstream practice-- I am proud that we have the ability to store and provide access to their creative works.

I think we can figure out how to make this all work, and not even go broke. Thank you all for helping.

I am thrilled to see all these Dead shows sufacing in PHENOMINAL quality...in the days of analog, we all knew that someone had the "serious shit" unbelievable...plus definitely take note of the sources...these early tapers
(wise,glassburg, others) are myy heros...they were all pulling amazing tapes DECADES ago with a fraction of the technolgy available to modern tapers...

Thank you to anyone involved w/ this project

Didn't mean to sound too harsh, but it is an extremely bold plan. Hope you all can find a way to remedy this because these speeds are depressing.

Once again, I don't think you can blame all of your speed problems on just the dead being here. I don't think it is that different with or without them and if they are having an effect on you it will probably die down in a little while.
